2021 Invasive Phragmites Management. Georgian Bay Forever Report.

11 Georgian Bay Forever Phragmites Report 2021 Community Cuts in Tay GBF staff hosted 3 community cuts in Tay of which 150 volunteer hours were donated. 1. Tay Shore Trail – Talpines Community Group 2. Delta Drive Delta Drive received cutting treatment from truxors in 2020 and upon return this summer, very little had grown back along the shoreline. This use of truxors in 2020 was seen as quite successful and the regrowth can now be managed by GBF staff and community members to push this area into eradication. A community cut took place with 3 GBF staff and 10 volunteers each dedicating a half to full day of cutting the regrowth. We removed approximately 500kg of invasive Phragmites from the Delta Drive shoreline.
